Why Christopher Lee Really Ought To Be Ashamed Of Himself

Yes, Republican U.S. Representative Christopher Lee truly ought to be ashamed of himself. For trying to arrange a sexual affair outside of his marriage? I don’t feel that it’s my place to talk about that, directly. I don’t know about Congressman Lee’s relationship with his wife, for one thing. Maybe she had just cheated on him, or had trapped him with some kind of blackmail in a loveless marriage.

There are two things that Christopher Lee really ought to be ashamed of, as I can see it. First, he ought to be downright ashamed of himself for trying to arrange a sexual affair online, using an email that could be extremely easily traced to his true identity, rather than the thin veneer of a 39 year-old divorced lobbyist he set up as a hookup pretense. Representative Lee is in his 40s, not some holdover from ancient pre-Internet times. He ought to have known better than to leave an electronic trail of nookie breadcrumbs leading straight to his online office door. His sloppiness suggests that Christopher Lee simply didn’t have the strategic thinking ability Americans ought to expect from a member of Congress.

Secondly, there’s Christopher Lee’s public record on sex and marriage – other people’s sex and other people’s marriages:

  • Lee refused to support the Uniting American Families Act, a law that would have created equality for same sex couples in immigration law, bringing loving couples together.
  • Lee would not help the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act move forward to passage. This legislation, if passed, would have created equal access to benefits for same-sex spouses of federal workers.
  • Lee would not support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would have simply made it illegal to fire a person just for being non-heterosexual.
  • Lee refused to sign his name to the Respect for Marriage Act, a proposed law which would have simply allowed for all marriages, regardless of sexual orientation, to be recognized across state lines.
  • Lee opposed the Federal Employees Paid Parental Leave Act, a bill that would have, if passed, helped married couples in the weeks after the birth of their children.
  • Lee voted against the repeal of the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy of discrimination against members of the military who engage in non-heterosexual sex.

    When it came to his own sex life, and his own marriage, Christopher Lee was willing to embrace an attitude of freedom. As a member of Congress, Christopher Lee worked to oppose the freedom of other Americans to live in sexual liberation, however. Furthermore, while Lee was willing to play fast and loose with his own marriage, he worked in Congress to deny other loving couples the right to get married and otherwise be recognized as equals.

    Christopher Lee shouldn’t have resigned just because it appears that he had some extramarital sexual affairs. Christopher Lee should have resigned from Congress because his extremist political agenda refused to recognize the marital rights and sexual legitimacy of other adult Americans.

    1. The party of “Family Values” my ass, more like the “Party of hypocrites”. Poor Christopher Lee, at least he resigned! What about “hush money” Senator John Ensign (NV), “diaper boy” Senator David Vitter (R-LA)! Too Funny!
